Otherwise the policy might not receive fair treatment and more w the office might be used by the in- Jown to the people. It is a rare thing to see such a .body of men in one Government and it is K elec- torate. Alberta will not do that and Lethbridge Tiill not be a party to any such movement. cumbent to discredit tiie government who formulated the policy. But in the ordinary run of routine business it does not as a rule make any dif-________________ ference whether the officeholder is a friend of the party in power or! BOARD OF TRADE GRANT not.

The Board of Trade to these offices is a part of what is called-.the- spoils system. "And it is ti om this taint that the Eutherford Government stands singularly free determined to secure the best public- ity man it could get. Before ac- cepting any applications they went to the Council to see what monev among-the Governments of this aare for him to expend in furthering the city's interests. Ai- 'ter a brief discussion, the Council, seeing the importance of the work, voted five, thousand dollars to the tiaent. Both oi the members-of the Opposi- tion have admitted in "the-House and outside of it, that they have, never been turned dojm in any. one of their ri .'commendations to the Government- fur either to office or the performance of public works. Mr. Robertson, lately leader of the Opposition, publidy stated that he- had never known a Government that was so free from partizanship in the matters of administration as has been the Rutherford Government. This is a tribute worth considering. A Gov- ernment that does not make a brutal of its power and has not been greedy for the spoils of office, is one that deserves and secures the con- fidence of the' general public. They do not want to take any chances on a change. LAW ENFORCEMENT One of the strongest recorneuda- tions that the Alberta Government has, is that given it by the new set- tlers who almost invariably remark upon-the strict "and speedy enforce- ment of the law. The enforcement is a; matter that rests Tvith the provincial, authorities the Attorney-General's department. The formation of. the District Courts for speedy Wai, the increasing of the number of Supreme Court judges, the various reforms in the administration of the-law which have decreased the the expense and expedited justice are all matters that commend the Gov- ernment highly to the people of this province.. The law has been enforced: without fear or favor or any regard fox class creed, nationality or party. The Government has invariably been the friend and advocate of the man seek- ing justice and as invariably has been a terror to evildoers. This is no mean boast and is abundantly justified .by the record of the department.. To the law-abiding citizen who has the best interest of the province at heart this is sufficient, ail' other things being equal to continue the Gov- ernment in power. Board-of Trade. Prince Albert is a city with a pop- ulation between one and two thou- sand less than that of Lethbridge. The Board of Trade there will have five .thousand dollars to expend, two thousand. of which they expect to pay for the salary of. the .publicity man and office expenses. The other three thousand be- expended in trying to attract industries to the city! What is good for Prince Al- bert and other towns that have fol- lowed this course with success ought to be a good thing for Lethbridge. Lethbridge has advantages from an industrial standpoint that are en- joyed by. very few places. If they were known abroad, capital would be attracted and the city's wealth and population would rapidly increse. This is an expense that the city as a whole should bear "because it is a benefit to the, whole city. Every thousand dollars, invested in Leth-. bridge has -the effect of making every- body else's property .more valuable It is only fair then that a small tion of these profits should go towards iurther of the whole people. The Alberta Government has al- ways put business before party and now it is up to the people who have so much beaefitted by this course of action to do likewise and vote for the Government without regard to previous party It is rather suggestive to the elec- tor to read that in the suit between the Government and the C.

Side Lichts THE FAM.OUS OLD 999 TJie story has been current that tins old 999, probably tha most famous Locomotive the world has ever kndwn has been retired oJi service. That is not true, according to Bradeen superintendent of motive power for the R.. W. O. division of the Cen- tral. The "old Run' is daily mak- ing more than the allotted run of 100 miles running from Clayton to Utica and back about .135 miles. The loco- motive is still in the panstmjier ser- vice and negotiates the distance every day to the entire satisfaction of the transportation department. lo- comotive came out- about 15 yearn ago, as the ultra in types j of locomotive construction. She was built to haul the Empire State Ex- press and established a speed record at the rate of 112 miles an hour.

Gentlvuien: Having been requested by a large number of the electors of this dis- trict irrespective of party politics to offer myself as a candidate at the general elections to be held -in the province on the 22nd inst, I have de- cided to accede to their request and offer myself as an independent can- didate and I now bespeak the hearty support of ull classes. Through long residence and travel in different parts of the district I have become intimately acquainted with the various needs of all classes and I therefore believe that without being egotistical, I con say that I have the qualifications and ability to properly represent this constituency in the Provincial Legislature. The present Government has admin- istered the affairs of the province during the past four years very cred- iitably and it has giveoi the people a great deal of sane legislation. And as evidence of this I migjbt mention the. workmen's compensation act, the eight-hour bank to bank (for miners) act, the mechanics' lien act and sev- eral others. The platform announced by the- Conservative party has also many good suggestions which I hope to see upon our statute books at an early date. For mysr-if, I may say that I stand and always for legislation that-will protect the rights oi .working men throughout the pro- vince. I also stand for improved leg- islatjon regarding our cities, towns and villages, and a thorough up to j date system of public schools where the children can obtain.an education, that will better prepare them for the duties of good citizens. I be- lieve also that more money should be spent in .putting our highways in proper condition for travel. I may say in conclusion that I stand for the disfranchising of people of the'Asiatic race, such. as Japs and Chinamen. These people take no interest-in our institutions and they should not be given the franchise and I pledge my- self if elected to introduce at the first session of the Legislature, a measure to deprive them of this right, also to prohibit their employment in or around the coal mines of the pro. vince. Upon the above grounds and many others too numerous to mention, in a short address. I appeal to the elec- tors of Racky Mountain District as an independent candidate for their hearty support, no matter what .their political leanings may "be and I prom- ise if returned as their member that the -interests of all classes and all parties will be faithfully, impartially and conscientiously respected by me.

TRIED AND TRUE MEN Three years, and a half ago the Province of Alberta was formed and the Hon: A, C. Rutherford was call- ed upon tot form the first Government. He chose as his colleagues, W. H. Gushing, C. W. Cross and W. T. Fin- lay. The members of the Govern- ment were untried men in the mat- ters- of provincial Government. Mr. Rutherford had been a member of the Territorial Legislature and when it went out of existence was the dep- .uty speaker. He was known, how- ever, to be a successful man in his profession. He had shown splendid executive ability in serving his own city in municipal administration and 'war- esteemed and respected where- ever he was known.
